Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Flights to Leeds usually depart from Heathrow's Terminal 5. Check your ticket before you go to the airport. Heathrow is a massive airport and arriving at the wrong terminal can be extremely inconvenient. Terminal 5 has its own dedicated stops on the Heathrow Express and the Piccadilly Line. Some trains bypass Terminal 5 in favour of Terminal 4, so check the route carefully before boarding. Once you get to Terminal 5 you can really relax. There are plenty of designer stores for window-shopping, posh restaurants if you fancy a bite to eat, and an Aspire Lounge where you can chill-out or get a bit of work done. For an extra fee you can indulge in the spa or sample the carefully curated cocktail menu.

Prices in Leeds are a little lower than in London. You'll save about £1* on a pint of draught beer, and around £5* on dinner for two. Due to its northern location Leeds is a bit colder than London. Summer temperatures tend to hover around 15°C (compared to 19°C in London) while winter temperatures sit around 3°C (compared to 7°C in London) but can frequently drop lower. January is the wettest month in Leeds, so if you're visiting at the beginning of the year you'll need to bring along an umbrella.
